    1997 Alex Rodriguez Game Used Bat. This is what a gamer is supposed to look like! The Louisville Slugger signature model C271 is simply pounded with use, with numerous ball and stitch marks throughout, and cleat marks visible on right and back barrel. Heavy coat on the upper handle and center brand has trapped infield grass like flies in amber. Handle remains miraculously uncracked. Length is just short of thirty-four inches, and weight is an even twenty-nine ounces, proper for A-Rod ordering records. Rodriguez signs the barrel in 9/10 silver sharpie with a "1997 gamer" notation, pinning its usage to a season in which he earned his first starting role in an All-Star Game. The combination of specifications, use and first-hand provenance results is a perfect GU 10 rating. LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
